Subject: Kucinich in '08
Obama's vote on FISA is very revealing. In the past eight years under Bush/Cheney, we have seen some of the worst abuses of the Bill of Rights in our history, all for something masquerading as "national security." Obama has shown no concern for this at any point in his campaign or in his "Blueprint for Change", nor any concern for privacy and civil liberties. Political pundits speculate that Obama does not want to be perceived as "weak" or "soft on terrorism." That may be, but at this point there is nothing to convince me that the crimes of the last eight years will not continue into the next administration.

I am writing in Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul. Quixotic as it may seem, they were the only candidates throughout the entire presidential campaign who expressed so much as passing concern for this. They boldly voted against the PATRIOT Act, realizing that it was a drastic measure compromising our civil rights, and introduced legislation to repeal its worst parts. They rejected the FISA amendment. They are constant defenders of the Bill of Rights. One vote won't "make a difference", but I have to vote for someone I can trust and who reflects my views. It's a statement that few people will hear, but will leave me at peace with myself.
